This for me was one of the highlights of my trip to Bath. The abbey inside is absolutely beautiful.. I would recommend the tour which cost us £8.00 on the hour. I learnt so much fascinating history about the place and even got to climb to the top for views of Bath were you can even see the famous spa! Thank you to our tour guide on the day (George the 3rd) he was brill!

I went visiting the Abbaye today and I felt surprised and speechless.

The Abbaye is an atypical example of Gothic architecture.

The Fan Vaulting is very unique and Stained glass has been restored with original glass for the biggest part of it.

The Bath Abbaye is a must-see in Bath.

The building is gorgeous. Well worth exploring, it's full of meticulous craftsmanship from floor to ceiling.

Just completed the Bath Abbey Tower Tour with guides George & Francesca. It is certainly a fabulous way to see the city of Bath from another perspective, and to gain an understanding of the size and grandeur of this special building. Both guides were knowledgeable & generous with their time on a brisk Saturday afternoon. Fascinating to sit behind the tower clock, and see the bells and mechanisms that drive both.

An added bonus was that the organist was practising this afternoon, and I exited to The Hallelujah Chorus.

Best kept secret of Bath, The Tower Tour of the Abbey. Excellent value for money at £8 each. Over 200 narrow steps up a spiral staircase. Stopped in the bell ringers room, behind the clock and in the bell tower. the view from the top was well worth the climb.
